i like makeup.
i can appreciate several days of not wearing it, but after a while, i NEED to put it on so i can feel like myself again.
i like wearing it.
a day when i put on makeup usually means i have somewhere to go and people to see.
Mary Kay sent me a box of goodies to try and i was so excited.
they sent the NEW TimeWise Repair Volu-Firm Eye Renewal Cream.
let's be honest...who doesn't need a little extra help in their eye area?
we all get tired, we are aging, and this refreshes the skin around the eyes and feels silky!
it even has a cool applicator shaped for the eyes.
also in my box was a Mini Compact with eye shadows and blush.
there are even little tiny brushes hidden under the makeup so everything you need is in one place.
they sent lip gloss in three colors.
i am partial to the shade CafÈ Au Lait...just enough color and all the shiny sparkle.
my favorite makeup essential is mascara.
i don't feel like i am done until i put on mascara.
they sent me Ultimate Mascara in black and Lash love Waterproof Mascara in black.
i almost always have to wear the waterproof...because i cry so easily.
just this week i was reading at my son's basketball game and i had to put my book away because i couldn't keep the tears in. So...waterproof mascara is the best bet for me.
but i love the Ultimate! it looks lovely on my lashes.
they also sent Lash Primer.
i had never even heard of Lash Primer...but now i love it.
it gives my mascara more volume and keeps my lashes curled longer.
my most favorite product Mary Kay makes is the TimeWise Microderabrasion Set.
this set makes my face feel AWESOME.
i am not kidding.
i use these two products all year round.
"wash your face every morning and evening" is the best makeup advice i ever recieved.
and i follow it 100%.
unless i fall asleep watching a movie or something...
